Marc Chandler joins me for an initial look at what drove markets this week. Mostly US and China tensions were font and center but there are so many factors that could perk up as we move through summer. We balance what will truly drive markets and money flows over the next few months.
Chris Temple joins me today to focus on the tension between the US and China. At the end of the last year a Phase 1 deal was signed and there was a lot of optimism for continued progress.
This year everyone has been distracted with COVID-19 however any progress that was made between the US and China has dissipated very quickly. Things look to be getting worse as the year progresses.

Marc Chandler wraps up the daily editorials this week by recapping the news of the week connected to financial markets. From the Fed meeting to the UK election to trade comments they all were very bullish for equity markets. However we did not see an overly strong move high by US stocks. Although up this week it goes to show that a lot of this good news was priced in. We also look ahead to 4 central bank meetings next week.
Chris Temple joins me to recap the news overnight of a possible signing of the Phase 1 trade deal and push back of the December 15th tariffs. Depending on what headlines you read you might have thought that a deal was signed. However no deal has been signed and markets are all over the place. We also touch on the UK election which make a Brexit much more likely in the near term.
Chris Temple wraps up today with a recap of the Fed statement, Powell’s press conference, and the trade focused tweets from the President today. While it seems like nothing can stop the run higher in US markets it is important to note what some of the other markets are doing heading into 2020. We also comment on inflation because that is dominating headlines ever since the Fed meeting yesterday.
Joel Elconin joins me today with a quick comment on what could happen to finally make US markets go through a meaningful sell off. We also discuss the possibility of inflation finally picking up next year. A couple other sectors that are catching Joel’s eye is oil and financials. These are moving for different reasons but the oil price moves are a but suspicious.
